G'Day active Apachies, MySql has beaten me into submission, so I'm rolling over, crocodile, and I give up.
Just a bit of background on me, I'm an ex VMS, Unix sys5, BSD4.3, Aegis, cpm, dos and a few graphics languages ex techo and I'm embarassingly stumped. I have loaded XAMPP v 5.1.14 and can get everything to run except the cdcol demo. I can start a Mysql session from a cmd shell by issuing mysql -u root --password='xxxxxxx' and it works and I can then look at the databases and issue commands but I cant run the cdcol demo and I cant go forward with my plans until I nail that.
This is the error message.
Could not connect to database!
Is MySQL running or did you change the password?
I have tried a lot of approaches but am still stumped can someone please help
Take care ghammer
